The 20 most beautiful bars in London

The Connaught Bar

Competing with the American Bar at The Savoy on the Art Deco elegance front, stepping inside the Connaught Bar in Mayfair is like stepping back in time into a more stylish and glamourous era when classic cocktails were only just being invented.

Designed by David Collins, the mirrored bar is framed by Art Deco detailing while Cubist touches add to the geometric aesthetic and textured walls shimmering in platinum silver leaf overlaid with dusty pink add an extra layer of opulence.

Run by Italian mixologist Ago Perrone, No visit would be complete without a trip to its famous Martini trolley. Connaught Martinis are only “quietly stirred”, never shaken, and are served with a unique twist tailored to your taste with handmade bitters.

Most impressively of all, they are poured from a considerable height by Perrone. The Connaught Bar was named the world’s best bar in 2016.
